“I love coming back here,” John said. “Everybody gets pretty excited. ... The support has bee pretty amazing.”
Landsteiner and his teammates leave today for Scotland where they will compete in the Perth Masters Bonspiel, an event that will include several Olympic teams. From there, they will go to Las Vegas to compete in the Continental Cup of Curling, an event similar to golf’s Ryder Cup that pits Team North America (U.S. and Canadian men and women) against Team World (teams from Great Britain, Norway, Sweden and Japan).
After that, it’s off to Russia.
The Games take place Feb. 7-23. Curling will be played Feb. 10-21.
“I don’t know if it’s really sunk in yet,” Landsteiner said.
